Another Snow Day

Yet another snow day today called for some creative thinking! We filled some water bottles with water and food coloring, and the kids went to town decorating the back yard! They had so much fun, and it kept them busy for hours!

Basketball Game

Jasen is playing basketball for his school, and he's so happy that him and his 2 best friends all got on the same team! Today they played Eagle Middle, and won! It was a great game, and a great way to start the season!

Happy Birthday!

Tristan Thomas turned 16 today, and I've been reflecting on this day for quite a while. I was only 16 when Tristan was born, and although I was so young, I wasn't scared or worried about what would happen to my social life. I never questioned keeping him- it was settled from the moment I found out I was pregnant, and I have never regretted it! He's been the best first kid I could have asked for- always patient with us as we flail around figuring out this whole parenting thing, always watchful over his siblings, my trusty sidekick who helps me out more than he knows. Happy Birthday Tristan! I love you more than you can imagine!

Today we celebrated the 7th birthday of our Mason! He is the best dog ever, and we are all so happy that he ended up with us! We couldn't have asked for a better buddy for the kids to grow up with! He is definetly starting to slow down and show his age, but he loves us all so much, and shows us every time he rubs his head against you, sits on your feet, or puts his paw up on your arm when he wants more head rubs.

Snow Days

Well, we got back from California just in time for Snowmegadon 2017! When we left, there was about 1 1/2 to 2 feet of snow on the ground, and when we got back we got another 2-3 feet! The kids went to one day of school, before staying home for 5 snow days due to ice and snow covered roads. So we spent our time getting caught up on housework, going bowling, spending hours upon hours shoveling the snow, and of course playing in it!

San Clemente

Since we didn't have to fly out until this afternoon, we went down to San Clemente for breakfast on the pier, and to walk through the farmer's market. It was a super nice way to finish off our trip, before we had to head back up to LA to fly home.
